Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers has exempted Starlink satellite communication terminals, as well as spare parts and components for the manufacture of electric generators, from import duty and VAT, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said in a statement on Nov. 29.
“Today we have approved the necessary documents for Starlink terminals to be imported to Ukraine free of duty and VAT,” he said.
“This will reduce their cost so they can be provided to as many people and organizations as possible.”
Meanwhile, Ukraine’s Economy Ministry noted that the government had amended the list of goods that are supplied to the territory of Ukraine without paying customs duties and VAT.
The tax benefits include components for the manufacture of energy equipment, water treatment facilities and satellite communications to the Internet (Starlink).
“First, the government has released imports of generators and energy equipment from customs duties and VAT,” the report says.
“This decision makes such products about 25% cheaper. Today, we’re making another step. To ensure that Ukrainian producers who assemble such products in Ukraine do not find themselves at a disadvantage, the government has additionally exempted spare parts for the assembly of generators and power equipment from VAT and customs duties,” said First Deputy Economy Minister Denys Kudin.
